Take a journey backwards through Olympic figure skating history and learn a bit about the pair skaters who have won gold medals at the Winter Olympic Games.

------------------------------------------------

Russian pair skaters Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov began skating together as children.  After the Olympics in 1988, Godeeva and Grinkov fell in love and were married in April of 1991.  Tragically, Grinkov died when he was only twenty-eight years old of a heart attack.
